Hong Kong based watch brand Tempest launches a second edition of its highly successful high quality automatic forged carbon watch made.
The Kickstarter campaign of the first Forged Carbon model was a huge hit. The second the Carbon2 is also made with Forged Carbon, a high tech material developed for use in aerospace, exotic race cars and high end sporting equipment.
With the new Kickstarter campaign, Tempest welcomes the wristwatch connoisseurs to own the highly exclusive forged carbon watch just below $800 instead of paying thousands of dollars to high end brands who also use the same materials and specifications.
A powerful and accurate Miyota Cal.9015 movement beats inside the case and each timepiece is tested to 200m water resistance. The Tempest Carbon's case back design is held down by 6 screws and the artwork is inspired by the Periodic Table of Elements and pays tribute to the element "Carbon".
The Carbon2 comes with a high quality, water-resistant Nylon strap with leather lining and black PVD coated stainless steel buckle.
